Unforgettable are the sledge runs through the nightly winter landscape and the cosy hours with a cheese fondue in the mountain restaurant Bussalp. The City Run toboggan run is not illuminated. The nocturnal light together with the white surroundings provide sufficient brightness, but you can also bring your own headlamp and so race down the mountain with your own lighting.
If the snow conditions are good, one can take a sledge from Weidli to Grindelwald village.
Important: a reservation for night sledging and fondue fun is absolutely necessary.
Bussalp - Lochsteinen - Weidli (end of the official sledge run)
Depending on the snow situation, you have the possibility to continue sledging to Oberäll, Gaggi-Säge or Grindelwald Dorf.
There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.
From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.
Grindelwald has public car parks with covered parking spaces: Eiger+ car park (252 parking spaces) and Sportzentrum car park (160 parking spaces). They cannot be reserved in advance. Uncovered parking spaces are available everywhere in the village.
Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.
The buses are right next to Grindelwald railway station.
